7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." we have new information, including names for two of the secret service agents who lost their jobs because of the sex scandal in colombia. >> as the investigation continues, officials say more agents could soon be fired. bill plante is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. top law enforcement officials tell cbs news the results of the lie detector test given to secret service members who were involved in the incident will probably be available today. those results are expected to put into motion the steps required to fire at least some of them. the inquiry into the secret service prostitution scandal is moving quickly on two tracks. in cartagena, government investigators are interviewing employees at the hotel caribe, where the scandal unfolded. they identified all the women who partied with the 11 secret service agents and 10 military members. the woman who started it all, a 24-year-old escort, is featured in the new york post and new york daily news.
7:04 am
she reportedly told investigators she was offered only $30 for her services instead of the $800 she was promised. here in washington, there are expectations of change. >> i would not be surprised if additional resignations came within the week. >> reporter: cbs news has learned the names of the two supervisors against whom the secret service took action. greg stokes, who was fired but has the option to appeal, and david cheney, who was allowed to retire. according to "the washington post," cheney protected governor sarah palin during her vice presidential run. he posted this photo of her on facebook, writing, i was really checking her out, if you know what i mean. palin told fox news the scandal was symbolic of government run amuck. >> the president, for one, he better be wary there of when secret service is accompanying his family on vacation. they may be checking out the first lady instead of guarding her. >> reporter: the post also reports cheney's father served in the secret service when
7:05 am
robert f. kennedy and lyndon johnson were in office. eight others remain under investigation. cbs news has been told some insist they did not patronize prostitutes and they did nothing wrong. >> there's push back, they don't want to lose their jobs but as evidence build, they can push them out. >> reporter: some republicansing including palin, are using this scandal to attack the president's leadership. >> the buck stops with the president. he's got to start cracking down and see heads roll. he has to get rid of people at the head of agencies where so many things, obviously, are amiss. >> reporter: well, the president did talk about the scandal last weekend when he was in colombia. he said he would be angry if the allegations turned out to be true. now the white house is trying to keep their distance but republicans keep pointing out several distractions. this incident, the troops posing with body parts in afghanistan and the big party the general services administration threw itself in las vegas and
7:06 am
suggesting itself somehow this adds up to a lack of presidential leadership. one thing to remember, of course, it's an election year. charlie, erica? >> bill plante, thank you. officials expect a tense scene in a florida courtroom as george zimmerman tries to get out on bail. the parents of trayvon martin will be at that hearing. mark strassmann is at the courthouse in sanford, florida. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. for george zimmerman this morning's hearings will involve a series at first, first bond hearing, first look at his new judge and first confrontation to the two people who want him most to stay behind bars. later this morning the 28-year-old zimmerman will come face to face for the first time with tracy martin and sybrina fulton, martin's parents. >> his injury -- >> reporter: and mark o'mara, his new lawyer, will ask a florida george to free zimmerman on bond, pending his murder
7:07 am
trial. >> we can say in this particular case he deserves bond. i don't think he needs to stay in jail while this case is pending. i want him out and safe, and i'm not sure where safe is going to be yet. >> reporter: zimmerman, behind bars since his arrest nine days ago, has asked for a private meeting with the teenager's parents. he had never communicated with them before. been yeah minimum crump, their lawyer, said yesterday it won't happen now and maybe never. >> we believe zimmerman's request at this time is very self-serving some 50 days later, the day before his bond hearing. >> reporter: under florida law, zimmerman, charged with second-degree murder, is ineligible for bond. but this hearing will allow o'mara to test the state's case and special prosecutor angela corey must presume the guilt is
7:08 am
great or they can offer bond. >> bond is there to make sure the person comes back to trial. bond is not there for pretrial punishment. he should be out on bond. he's going to come back, no question about that. if george zimmerman was going to run, it would have happened. >> reporter: he has ties to his local community. his parents will phone in on his behalf, he's never been convicted of a crime and been cooperative with police, staying in daily contact before his arrest and turning himself in after murder charges were filed last week. special prosecutor corey could decide, rather than lay out her case, not to challenge the bond request and zimmerman facing a possible life sentence could walk free as soon as later today. if zimmerman is freed, he could be restricted to his local community and may have to wear a gps ankle monitor. his safety is also a genuine worry. charlie and erica, police will not be responsible for keeping him safe. >> mark, thank you.
7:09 am
etan patz has the distinction of being the first missing child ever shown on a milk carton. >> his disappearance in new york city captivated the nation in 1989 and the mystery has never been solved. there are new developments in the case, which john miller, former fbi official, has covered from day one. >> reporter: the nypd and fbi are about to dig up the concrete floor in the basement of this building. just down the street from the last place etan patz was seen 33 years ago, a school bus stop. >> we're putting greater emphasis on this location, looking forensically for any evidence of human remains, of clothing. >> reporter: sources tell cbs news that cadarer dogs indicated human remains during a search here. the days before patz died in 19
7:10 am
9, he came home with a dollar from this man, otheil miller, who paid etan when he helped with small chores. he had a workshop in this building, just after etan disappeared, a new concrete floor was put down. >> the fbi's been here to investigate the case. he cooperated with them. went to the site. and he doesn't have anything to do with this. >> reporter: perhaps because the boy's father was a professional photographer and had hundreds of clear images of a blond haired boy with a grin, perhaps because the case tapped into every parent's nightmare, the disappearance of etan patz haunted the nation. >> you see that little face, those eyes and a beautiful, innocent boy, and someone who never had a future. very sad. >> reporter: images of etan were placed on milk cartons and started the movement that led to the founding of the national center for missing children.
7:11 am
but for stan and julie patz, there was never closure. in 2000 they spoke with "60 minutes" about their refusal to give up hope. >> we have his belongings all over the house. putting them away is saying to us and to our children that he's gone and he's not coming back. >> reporter: today no one has ever been charged in the case, but many suspected that etan was kidnapped and murdered by jose ram ramos, a friend of patz's babysitter in jail on charges of child molesting in pennsylvania. now police are looking at other leads that may point to new suspects. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> why now? >> you know, this is one of the rare murder cases that comes out of a campaign promise. when vance was running for district attorney, the family of patz challenged him and other candidates and said, if you win, will you reopen this case? he said yes. and when he started in that office over a year ago, they put
7:12 am
a team of fresh investigators and prosecutors on this case with the fbi and started going over old suspects and saying, did we do everything with this angle? did we do everything with this location? that's what we're seeing now. >> and how confident are they that we'll find a body? >> they are cautiously optimistic. they're cautiously optimistic because of the interviews they've had with the man who controlled that space back then, othneil miller and because a cadaver dog alerted on that space, and the odd circumstances of when that concrete floor was laid after the disappearance and why. >> they didn't look at it then, as i understand it, because it would are been too expensive to replace the concrete floor? >> that's what people a. that's not correct. that's the hort version. they interviewed miller at the time, a friend of the family, had a good relationship with the boy, for all appearances, and they said, when did this concrete floor go down? he said just the other day. they said, we might want to dig under that. and at the time, this was back
7:13 am
in 1979, othneil miller said, if you dig it up, you have to pay to put it back down again. there were other suspects, other leads, and things that looked better at the time. this is going back 33 years later and saying, was there any lead we didn't take all the way that we could take further now? >> john, thank you. four american soldiers are feared dead after their helicopter crashed in afghanistan. the blackhawk went down in southwestern afghanistan overnight in bad weather. it is unclear if the helicopter was fired on. an investigation is under way. to the drama over new york's kennedy airport on thursday.& a bird strike knocked out an engine on delta airlines jet forcing an emergency landing. as michelle miller reports, the trouble started right after flight 1063 took off from los angeles. >> reporter: the plane landed safely on the ground after a harrowing few minutes in the air. inspectors examined the right engine, which was damaged after what passengers described as
7:14 am
violent shaking followed by smoke seen in the cockpit. minutes after the flight took off, the pilot radioed to air traffic control. >> delta 1063 has had an engine failure on the right engine. declaring emergency due to a bird strike. >> reporter: one passenger shooting video after takeoff captured striking footage of a flock of birds out the window. a freeze frame shows at least seven birds, some of which were probably ingested in the right engine. >> we have declared an emergency engine failure. >> reporter: a visual return would save precious seconds for the pilot as he guided the crippled aircraft down. >> we're going to square it out to the right here and head back in and just to let you know, our stats, delta 1063, 179 souls on board. >> reporter: the flight brought back memories of the miracle on the hudson back in 2009 when us airways flight 1549 made an
7:15 am
emergency landing after both engines were damaged by a flock of geese. last night in los angeles, delta passenger grant cardone recalls his fear. >> i experienced a tremendous amount of turbulence, lurching up and down and i thought we were going to roll. >> reporter: he had souvenir video. >> i'm glad my little girl gets to see this video today. >> reporter: michelle miller, & new york. >> captain sullenberger, knows this scenario all too well. good morning, sully. >> good morning, charlie. >> tell me what steps the captain might are taken to bring this plane to safety? >> well, the captain and first officer would have been working closely together during this entire episode. the loss of a single engine on takeoff is something pilots train for on a regular basis. it's well within the skill set. but the noise of the failing engine, the vibration, the
7:16 am
suddenness of it certainly would are gotten their attention. they would have taken immediate steps to control the airplane and return for landing. >> sully, there seems to be a renewed focused on bird strike since your landing, miracle on the hud on. a lot of talk in the new york area about the concentration of birds around airports. how much of a concern is that? >> it is a concern. bird populations have grown in the last decade. in new york, in particular, there's a proposal now by the city of new york to build marine transfer stations, trash facilities, near laguardia airport. one only about 2,000 feet from the end of one of the major runways at laguardia and one at east 91st street. i've spoken about this before. it's a bad idea to build near an airport anything likely to attract birds. >> anything you can do about the planes to make them more immune from this kind of thing? >> well, a lot of people are looking at that right now. of course, there are some limitations in terms of the
7:17 am
materials and the weight that an airplane can accommodate. the best techniques currently are to try to discourage bird from roosting near the airport and also in terms of migratory birds like the floss of geese we struck over the hudson, could be anywhere. there is experience with high frequency radar that could determine them within a few miles of the airport. it's going to be a problem for a while. >> thank you for joining us. congratulations on your new book on leadership. >> thank you. i'll see you next month in new york when the book is published. >> look forward to it. now time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. "the new york times" reports more experts are worried the economic recovery might falter this spring. two big reasons, higher interest rates on european bonds and high oil prices. daily mirror has a story on ande erer erers breivik saying

titanic sank in the north atlantic. 100 baseball seasons later, teams and ballplayers, both great and forgettable, have come and gone. but the ballpark lives on. today no stadium is older or quirkier. its one-of-a-kind left field wall was originally built to block nonpaying spectators and painted in 1947 to match the park. the green monster was born. a wall that seems even more monstrous by the rest of fenway's tiny dimension. full capacity is barely 37,000 fans. and the red sox have sold every seat for almost nine years. >> this is the thing about fenway park. you feel, even sitting in these seats, but even in the bleacher, you feel like you can reach out and choke the opposing players with your bare hand at any given moment. and, you know, that's -- sometimes you feel like choking a red sox player.
